Christmas Chart #9 – I wish it could be Christmas every day

You can’t have Christmas without certain songs, and “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday” is one of those tunes.

Originally released by Wizzard in 1973, it has been rereleased in numerous versions, covered, and become one of the most widely recognised Christmas hits.  Roy Wood (the founder of Wizzard) re-released it into the 2007 UK Christmas charts when the tune was used in an Argos commercial!  A special fact just for Laura is that like all other great music out of the UK, Roy Wood is from Birmingham!

By the looks of this video, and the presenter Jimmy Saville‘s outfit I’d say this was from the early 70’s Top of the Pops.  Crazy make-up, crazy tune:
